Last night a reem dream died. We're as shocked as you are. Joey Essex wasn't the only one who went on a journey in the jungle. His hair did too.
Let's take a look at his luscious locks before and after he joined the camp...
Before joining his campmates in Australia Joey's hair was straight, slick and swept back...
... three weeks later and our Essex boy's hair was a wavy, floppy , relaxed mop of beauty.
Will Joey go back to his old style or embrace his "Hey! Anything goes" new look?
After his next hair wash will he blow dry his hair like this?

Why was Joey's hood up in last night's Roach Trip Trial?
Was he keeping all manner of creepy crawly beasties out of his beautiful locks...

What do you think?
Joey may be naive but he's no idiot and we wouldn't blame him either way...

Joey's Hair Watch monitors the changes that occur when no product is applied to Mr Essex's beautiful barnet.
Yesterday Joey had a hair-raising first trial, chowing down on turkey testicles...
Fortunately his hair didn't stand on end. There are no signs that our trials are giving the fine young specimen of Essex masculinity early grey hairs. Yet.
We're loving Joey's new wavy, curly locks... but the man himself doesn't seem too impressed.
How long until Joey shouts "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Some Straighteners"?
Please don't guess using "clocks that go round"...

Joey Essex is worried about his hair during his time in camp. We're not - we're fascinated.
According to Mr Essex when left unwashed, unconditioned, un-styled and free to grow 'au natural', the TOWIE star's hair goes crazy.
We'll be monitoring all developments closely and updating you on Joey's barnet on a day-by-day basis. Notice, for example, there's no evidence in the press pictures above that Joey actually wore the safari hat he's holding.
